eCos has not been ported to the lpc2000 family at
all, for any eval board. I'm working on a port as
we speak. Can't tell you when it'll be done.

eCos has lots of documentation. Porting is
documented as well as all the innards of the OS.
Don't know if it'll be "comfortable" though...

Hi,
 
eCOS is developed using GNU Compiler tools as used by Ashling, Keil and Rowley. IAR have their own proprietary compiler, hence, not sure how easy it is to get eCOS working with this.
 
For your benefit, here are some eCOS links:
 
Anthony Massa' s book "Embedded Software Development with eCOS". It's worth buying a hardcopy, however, a PDF version is available at: http://www.informit.com/content/downloads/perens/0130354732.pdf
 
Anthony's homepage for the book is at:
http://authors.phptr.com/massa/
 
 
Other useful eCOS online references are:
 
http://www.ecoscentric.com/index.shtml
http://sources.redhat.com/ecos/
 
 
Have you considered Ashling for LPC2000 tools ? See the below link for details or contact me. We have a port of eCOS up and running with our LPC2000 evaluation boards (EVBA7)

Hello Jean-Rene,

I disagree with your sentence, that ecos was not ported to LPC2000-Family.
Have a look at (you can find this email also in a previous email on Januara
24, 2004)

http://bugs.ecos.sourceware.org/show_bug.cgi?id00068

Regards,

Martin

You're right. I should have said "has not yet been
*officially* ported." I'm actually working off that
port you pointed to. It compiles with errors on my
end so I figured it's still very preliminary.

Someone else on this list said they had ported
eCos to an Ashling board, proving me wrong once
again. I haven't seen that port in the source
tree though.
